A great lens fo my Panasonic Gx 9. Great results and when I pair it with Topaz sharing AI cannot see any difference from my very expensive glass. I mainly shoot street but for the occasions I shoot long distance this lens does a great price and is lightweight for travel.

What a buy

Being a professional photographer, this lens is excellent for a wide array of photography whether its close ups or being far from something but needing that for a shot

Light, sharp, affordable, well-made

I sold the Oly equivalent for this one because it's more compact, doesn't feel as cheap and doesn't extend very far at full zoom. I use it all the time for casual wildlife photos. Nothing about it bothers me and I like that the max aperture is a little larger than we typically get these days, which tends to be 6.3 or even 7.1.

A nice lens for the price.

I purchased the 45-150 mm lens in addition to the kit lens. A great lens with nice reach for a great price. I purchased the lens/GX9 for my hiking/cycling needs and have not been disappointed.

Excellent for a kit zoom

This lens is better than it has any right to be for the price. Cheap kit telephotos used to be terrible, this lens is a pleasant surprise! I have several good Panasonic primes and this lens compares very well at same apertures. I like it because it's so small and light for the range. Obviously it's not a low light shooter with the aperture range, but in good light it delivers. The zoom ring is not the smoothest but that's not surprising for the price. Overall this tiny telephoto is excellent in my book.

Just ok for price

Very dark lens. Autofocus is like squint sniper. It is better to add money and buy something from the summilux series fixes.
